Godly PervertsWell. The Catholic Church spends oodles to defeat marriage equality in Maine, and yet their own record on child abuse…Well!

The latest from Ireland, as found in NPR‘s Report Accuses Catholic Church Of Abuse Cover-Up:

The Roman Catholic Church in Dublin covered up decades of child abuse committed by priests because bishops wanted to protect the church’s reputation at the expense of victims, an expert commission reported Thursday after a three-year probe into previously secret church records.

Abuse victims said they welcomed publication of the probe into the mishandling of 1975-2004 child-abuse cases in the Dublin Archdiocese, home to a quarter of Ireland’s 4 million Catholics. But they said government and church leaders still had far to go to compensate for past wrongs.

The government said the investigation “shows clearly that a systemic, calculated perversion of power and trust was visited on helpless and innocent children in the archdiocese.” …

…Thursday’s 720-page report — delivered to the government in July — analyzes the cases of 46 priests against whom 320 complaints were filed. The 46 were selected from more than 150 Dublin priests implicated in molesting or raping boys and girls since 1940…

Boston, Los Angeles, San Diego, and Ireland — these are among the locations where the Catholic Priests have been documented to have committed pedophilia…and where the Catholic Church has had a history of its hierarchy protecting its pedophile priests at the expense of these priests’ victims.

I think it’s safe to say the Catholic Church has nuzzled and snuggled its Godly Perverts in it’s very recent history, never bothering to remove the logs from its own eyes as it rightiously seeks to remove the specks it perceives to be in the eyes of others.
